Curried Sausage Casserole

I absolutely love summer food, fresh and crisp salads and healthier, lighter meals…all washed down with a glass of rosé if i have my way!…BUT i also totally love the change in weather and the move towards more Autumnal warming, hearty and comforting food….this casserole falls into the Autumn category. It’s slightly spiced to give you that warm cosy feeling..it’s always a winner in this household…probably because sausages are involved!!…but yep always clean plates and full and warm tummies!

So start by frying off a diced onion in a little oil, after a few minutes add

1 crushed garlic clove, 1 tsp cumin and 1 tsp turmeric. Stir for a few minutes to release the aroma of the spices.

Next add 2 chopped fresh tomatoes. This will help to deglaze any spices stuck to the bottom of your pan.

Next in goes your chopped sausages, i use turkey sausages to reduce the fat content but any sausages would work

After 10 mins stir and check it’s not catching at the bottom, if it is add a touch more water and cook for a further 10 minutes with the lid on until the potatoes and sausages are cooked through and almost falling apart. This will help to thicken the sauce.

Finally stir through some spinach until it starts to wilt and then you’re ready to serve.
